In his films and video installations, Marko Schiefelbein explores the language and imagery of the advertising industry, investigating their role in the process of constructing and reproducing identity. His works depict the expulsion of an individual from a possible state of complacency and frugality into a permanent state of a search for a perfectly made version of one’s own personality – an expulsion into the paradise worlds created by advertising.
Marko Schiefelbein is this year’s member of the Media in Space and Network Culture jury.
